In this country, "summer" vacation is upon us! Throughout the year, busy educators set aside ideas for investigation later. Well, "later" is NOW! I think this Intel Engage community is the perfect place for teachers and administrators to learn about ways to integrate technology into their curricula while still teaching standards and using Project Based Approaches.I'm going to give a short list of areas and discussions IN THIS COMMUNITY which I think should be on your list for the summer study program.
I hope others will chime in here with their favorite parts of the community! You can add to the document or just make a comment! What do you think is worthy of a little time this summer for your colleagues?
Add a row and fill it in- remember, these areas are in our community and great ways to learn on your own this summer! vkajones, glen_w, NaomiHarm, firstname.lastname@example.org, blancaedu, julesfischy, NaomiHarm, dougemints, susangauthier, cgardne, ProfWhitby, and everyone else!
